Google today announced the release of Android 12 Beta 4, which brings the upcoming mobile platform to its Platform Stability milestone.
“Today we’re bringing you the fourth Beta of Android 12, and moving into the final phase of the release,” Google vice president of engineer Dave Burke writes. “We’ve built Android 12 with a new UI that adapts to you, performance improvements, privacy and security enhancements, and more. We’re now shifting our focus to polish, performance, and stability.”
The Platform Stability milestone is aimed at developers: It means that Android 12’s application programming interfaces (APIs) and app-facing behaviors have all been finalized. So Google would like developers to now focus on their apps’ Android 12 compatibility, and on quality.
For users interested in testing Android 12, Beta 4 is now available as an over-the-air update. And if you haven’t enrolled a compatible device in the beta yet—it’s available on supported Pixels as well as select handsets from ASUS, Oneplus, Oppo, Realme, Sharp, and ZTE—you can do so here.
